Description

Welcome to the course that will explain the fundamentals of Manufacturing from the very basics – “Fundamentals of Mechanical Engineering”. Whether you are an engineer, product developer, emerging entrepreneur, or simply an Android or Java Developer who is intrigued by the world of manufacturing, this course will provide skills that will help you in many aspects of your engineering or non-engineering career.

Contents and Overview

In this course you will learn these essential manufacturing processes and calculations;

  1. Basic Manufacturing
  2. Turning
  3. Punching
  4. Milling
  5. Holding and Drawing Force
  6. Feasibility Ratios
  7. Drilling 
  8. Bending
  9. Centrifugal Casting
  10. Production Cycle Time

By the time you complete this course, you will feel very accomplished and look at products around you differently depending on your profession. If you are in engineering, you will be able to make great prototypes for your design projects and have more hands-on skills compared to your other classmates. If you are not in engineering, you will develop a good eye for seeing things in terms of manufacturing. you will be able to see your smartphone or your window frames and think how they must have been made!

There is a lot to learn and you will have questions along the way. Feel free to post your questions and ideas onto the discussion board of this course and I will reply with an answer within 48 hours. I encourage students to participate as much as possible.



Who is the target audience?
  • Anyone with an interest in how things are made and how manufacturing works. No prior technical background required.
